Still in the mid-90's every day!
So hot for this Swede from the Pacific Northwest! So, in addition to staying places where I can run the AC for about 10 hours a day, I've been outfitting the rig for the extended sun and heat.
To help the tires, I added a set of sun blockers I got on sale at Camping World.

For the car, I added a reflectix panel for the non-tinted side window to go along with the windshield sun screen.
I have front and side awning sun blockers ordered from Amazon - they'll be here by the end of the week. Carefree Sunblocker and Carefree Side Blocker
This tarp provides shade for my Yeti Cooler - helping it keep ice for a few more glasses of iced Tea or an 'adult beverage'.
And, when all else fails . . .
I can lounge by the pool.
Sometimes it's worth it to stay in an RV Resort - it's still a big parking lot, but the 'extras' are worth it right now. Especially the pool!
I'm currently staying at Adventure Bound (previously Cactus Country) RV Resort. In addition to full hook-ups (yay, AC!), there is a laundromat, a recreation room, library, free cable TV and wi-fi. I can have my mail forwarded here, there is a nice cactus garden and the landscaping is really nice. It's pretty convenient for shopping - so, I'm getting re-stocked. I would definitely stay here again.

|To me, Palm Trees just scream 'I'm on vacation' .|
The cactus garden walk is also very informative with lots of excellent specimens.
|I really like the variegated color on this agave.|
|The Ocotillas are really tall!|
|Love the orange glow to the barbs in the sunlight!|
|Pretty sure that this is the rare 'Saguaro Metallica'|
